Details

The Hammer 3 knife quick-change, self-setting cutterblock system guarantees excellent planed wood surfaces and simple operating comfort. Since 1987 the cutterblock quick-change system has proven itself a thousand times over and our customers worldwide have saved on expensive additional investment in standard planer cutterblocks. The quick-change cutterblock system is only available from the Felder Group! Your advantages at a glance:
  • Planer knife change without adjustments in seconds
  • Disposable knives, each with two cutting edges at an affordable price
  • no expensive adjustment devices required as with the standard planer knives for example
  • no second set of planing knives are required during the sharpening cycle
  • Exclusive for planer/thicknessers from the Felder Group. The Silent-Power® spiral cutterblock reduces noise emissions by more than half when planing. The continuous pulling cut ensures tear-free results when planing all types of wood. With this revolutionary new development from Felder you are obtaining all of the advantages of a spiral cutterblock at considerably lower operating, investment and adjustment costs. The advantages of the Silent-Power® cutterblock at a glance ...

    • Sensationally quiet, noise emissions halved
    • Blade life up to 20 times longer
    • Four highly precise cutting edges on each knife
    The strong ribbed Hammer planer and thicknesser tables are made from solid cast iron and ensure excellent precision in every situation. The width of the planing table equates to the planing width, which means that workpieces can be planed safely across the full length of the planing table.

    The large adjustment handle for the planing depth of cut is integrated perfectly into the machine design. The depth of cut adjustment of up to 4 mm can be carried out quickly, simple and precisely without having to release any locks. That is top class operating comfort.
    The planer fence can be moved and fixed to any position across the width of the table. The planing fence is made of aluminium and can be tilted and fixed at any position between 90°–45°. Fine adjustable end stops ensure an exact 90° and 45° position. The precise workpiece guiding whilst joining and bevelling is helped by the long planing fence.
    A space saving solution with optimum ergonomics: Planer tables tilt away from the user operating area, this ensures that working with your Hammer planer is as user-friendly as possible and also requires less workshop space. The simultaneous, dual opening and closing of the planing tables saves time and is extremely comfortable. The planing tables lock automatically at the 0° end position.
    The maximum thicknessing height of 225 mm is a guarantee for the perfect processing of large and heavy workpieces. An even more precise, tenth of a millimetre accurate adjustment of the thicknessing height is possible as an option with a handwheel and integrated digital clock.
    The aerodynamically optimised construction of the dust extraction hood with its ample chip space guarantees an ideal chip extraction and clean working surface.

    The Horizontal Mortiser is mounted on the jointer-planer side.

    Processing long and heavy workpieces without assistance - no problem with a Hammer! The Hammer table extension system has proven itself thousandfold, the world over. In just a few steps and without tools the table extensions can be mounted to every Hammer machine. The surface can be extended by 400 or 800 mm on each side of the working table. Which means that it is possible to increase your table length by up to 1600 mm!
    Hammer woodworking machines are an absolute spatial wonder. The efficient machine design of a Hammer means that space can be found in even the smallest of workshops. As an option a rolling carriage can be fitted to every Hammer, offering mobility and freeing up additional space.
